The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.241 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 22%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 1st in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 98th in the world for Safest, scoring 3,043.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
